          Looking like a quarterback getting ready to throw a pass, there is nothing cheesy about how John Gay, cooked up this sandwich out of clear white wood, a.k.a. poplar.  The stain is cherry and the cheese is felt.

*************************************************************************
Richard Storm must have figured out that John Gay needed salt and pepper, so Richard crafted this neat salt and pepper set.  The napkin holder was a suggestion from his wife. A lovely way to utilize mesquite wood.               L1010347.JPG (111236 bytes) L1010354.JPG (55189 bytes)

          Dan Smith brought the knives to "cut" John Gay's sandwich. The handles are of bocote.  Dan sanded the handles down to 1000 grit then buffed for the polish.  There is no finish on the handles.     L1010345.JPG (193112 bytes)  L1010362.JPG (140709 bytes)
